Technical Requirements for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) Broadcast Service Receiver

The Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission (MCMC) provide test methods for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) broadcast receivers to ensure interoperability, functionality, quality, safety and performance.

Within the technical code MCMC MTSFB TC T011:2019, the common test suite provided is intended to provide a comprehensive documentation on test cases and test streams (in case of SI/PSI) which are derived from the DTT receiver specifications registered by MCMC, providing a complete test kit for product designers and test engineers to evaluate product compliance.

The following are covered in the standard:

  • Radio Frequency (RF) performance test and requirements
  • SI/PSI conformance test and requirements
  • Over Air Download (OAD) test and requirements
  • Hybrid Broadcast TV (HbbTV) test and requirements

The purpose of the provision of these methods is to ensure that all mandated equipment are certified according to the applicable Malaysian standards, technical codes or through technical declaration in accordance to the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, its subsidiary legislations, statutory requirements and established rules and procedures.

The revision is intended to update the test cases which would address the different parameters and implementation of the standard by various manufacturers. The update would also ensure that the test cases are in line with the latest test suite used internationally.
